Another two options:
• Format the HDD as HFS+ and run MacDrive on windows. Not free but works very well (I have it myself).
• Format the HDD as NTFS and follow these instructions. Free, but is going to have to be redone if you change the drive name or want to add another NTFS drive.
See Freak's GA-X99M-GAMING 5 for guide.
About the MSI X99 SLI:
PRO: 128 GB memory support.
CON: No thunderbolt header, that is you will not be able to use thunderbolt add on card. Stick with ASUS, Gigabyte, or ASRock if you want thunderbolt.
I thought the core configuration was 4096/256/64?
I don't see how this Fiji XT can be a titan killer with < 4k GCN cores...
Plus I was really looking to replace my crossfire Tahiti XTLs (2x2048) with essentially double the compute power (2x4096) :D
"The GTX 680’s FP64 performance is 1/24th its FP32 performance, compared to 1/8th on GTX 580." (anandtech)
Unlike Titan, Titan Black which where 1/3rd.
Essentially equivalent to 980 since both 1/32nd but will perform slightly better than 980 since essentially 50% more compute...
I followed these instructions and got everything working just fine on the first graphics card out of the 2 R9 280Xs I have in 16x slots. Its clear I need to duplicate your above edits somehow for the second card. Any ideas?
Let me save you the trouble: DO NOT GET THIS CARD. Don't even bother considering it. Its an utter clusterf*ck waste of money. Driver performance (i.e. thread distribution over GPUs by apps) is abysmal even in windows, much less OS X. About the only thing it kills is Luxmark, N-Body simulations...
Its not really a matter of OS X; you need to check compatibility with your motherboard. In the manual, there will be a listing of various memory modules which have been tested and verified to be compatible by the manufacturer.
That being said, RAM compatibility is almost guaranteed to work if...
